There's been some consistent feedback that the design of the new platform is a bit clunky and difficult to navigate and use. To begin, can you help me better understand some specific design elements you'd change to improve the overall flow (Wider margins, a Mac-specific section etc.)?

Adam,

As a point of departure, just list the things you can do here (in this "antique" forum) and that you cannot do in the new forum. I'm not referring to "wider margins" !
The new forum will only attract us if it offers as much or better functionality.
A few examples :
• a user profile is a must (Version of Finale, OS)
• a signature with those data, immediately visible
• sub sections (Mac, PC, and why not : basic questions, graphical/visual, audio, plug-ins)
• more attachement formats (Finale files, mp3, mp4...)
• an answered thread should come back to the TOP of the list, not disappear down the list
• read/unread postings
• a way to easily spot our own contributions
• possibility to delete a post completely, not only erasing its content
• search on a poster's name (his posts)
• number of members
• who is on-line ?
• polls
• + see other members remarks

I'm still trying to be positive, but on your side, please open your eyes. If the idea to centralize things means losing the contributions made by your professional users, MakeMusic will be the final loser.
Ask yourself the question why the new forum is so quiet...


In short: The new forum is terrible for all of the reasons mentioned above. I am someone who is active on it.

If I may be so bold, but perhaps we could all consider sending our notes direct to the source? We are all pretty much in agreement here, but it may have more effect if we sent our sentinments directly to Adam and Co via PM.

Just my Sunday thoughts.

I understand why they are moving/consolidating the forums. I would suggest moving over but supplementing it with the oldest and most detailed forum that forced MM to create a forum in the first place. The forum that provided Tobias input to create TGTools. /lists.shsu.edu/mailman/listinfo/finale It's still "old school" based on emails but the discussions can be quite detailed. Mostly pro people but a variety of skills and everyone is extremely helpful. Enjoy.

I am angry and frustrated that this forum would even be considered for termination. What in the world is makemusic thinking? I find this forum to be unbelievably valuable and I'm shocked that it is going to disappear. I get so much from this community of Finale friends that there must be a good alternative to such a drastic end.

Please don't shut this forum down! You have something very special here that few companies can say they have, and I don't think your marketing department appreciates it. I've been reading it for years and if it were not for the help from this forum, I probably would not be a Finale user. Please reconsider!

This is a terrific forum because of the accumulated knowledge and the community. The level of detail one can provide is so worthwhile compared to most other help outlets. Finale's quirks, problems, features and tricks go back many years, and so does this forum. I've learned so much from it over the years in a way I can't imagine doing so elsewhere, and hopefully I've contributed a thing or two along the way.

One problem (among others) with locking the forum is that if someone searches for help and finds a relevant thread here, that person won't be able to comment here, and people who have subscribed to the thread who might want to learn more or have relevant info won't be notified, and the discussion will end. That's a real loss of community knowledge.

It's true, the UI of this forum is outdated, and Facebook, Twitter, newer forums etc. are more useful for some people. MakeMusic doesn't have unlimited time to monitor them all, that's understood.

But why not at least allow this forum to live on as a community forum, and state that it is no longer being officially monitored?

Yes. Might be. I google the problem and try to find the solution, if this is what MM wants (beside their profit).

No. If I find out that there is no consistent place where I can see Zuill, Mike Rosen and all those other contributors who helped a lot to MM and all the forum members, I will keep my hardware and software untouched without any upgrade at all.

And at the end of the day MakeMusic will go ahead with the move, we will all migrate to the new forum and by the end the week all of us will have forgotten what the fuzz was about. And when push comes to shove we all want/need a place to gather and share knowledge on the software that we (have to) use, so we will go find it in the bowels of a dead cow if necessary. Corporations know that and couldn't care less what customers wish or want. Customers are but dogxxxx on the shareholder's shoe after all.

This decision is against all those loyal users and contributors. This forum is one of main reasons why I always say that Finale is the best notation software.

Adam, what is centralised?
Than close all other platforms and leave us here in peace.
At least upgrade this forum to a more robust one.

The complete majority (100%) of experienced Finale users and posters on this forum say NO to your terrible idea. You still think it is OK?

Adam,
I just got home from a gig and read the posts that came after the one I posted, and I'm wondering what is it going to take for you and whom ever else to realize that we ARE telling you what we want and need. It is THIS forum Adam. This is where the newbies are going to come to be informed, instructed and nurtured by the more experienced pros just like I was 15 years ago.
I have at least 40 years of experience as a very successful guitarist with a wonderful resume', but the names of the people I have work with and for would not be on my resume' unless I gave them what THEY wanted. I can't explain "customer satisfaction" any clearer than that.

I would weigh the feedback from the base and see if it is worth moving.

I predict this move simply drives the base away and into various forums thus diluting what we have here now.

FWIW, I didn't even know there was a new Help Center. I checked it out, but quickly got discouraged. Change is not always a good thing. It is simply not user friendly at all. Or maybe I am just so used to this forum that it would be an adjustment. I am not really interested in learning something new when this forum is so easy to use as well as super helpful.

As I pointed out on Facebook this week in one of the Finale forums there, MakeMusic tends to ignore their user base like the plague. Here we are again...

Really Adam, really? You don't see the glaring issues with your new forum?

It has been impressed upon you the need fixes for this to become an acceptable means of help for the user base (and for Make Music's standing in the community). This is being ignored and quite frankly akin to a slap in the face to the long time very knowledgeable users that have helped make Make Music's status what it is today.
Just look at the new forum, read through the replys and number thereof and tell us honestly that this is acceptable?
If you believe so.....well there it is.....and this member will seek out to help and be helped on other boards.

Hi All,

I wanted to jump back in and thank you for the feedback and to clarify the purpose of migrating to the new community platform.

Centralizing our existing knowledge base and community makes the breadth of answers in both mediums available in one location for all of our customers. The extensive knowledge and experience that the members of this forum have are critical in driving the content here and it's our hope that you'll find meaningful relationships and participation in the new community as well. The fact is that splitting up conversations amongst two different platforms ultimately makes it more difficult to find relevant information for all of our customers - We want to solve that problem.

The new community isn't necessarily intended to match this existing forum with complete parity. With that said, we want the new platform to have robust functionality and to be an easily-used resource for you. There's been some consistent feedback that the design of the new platform is a bit clunky and difficult to navigate and use. To begin, can you help me better understand some specific design elements you'd change to improve the overall flow (Wider margins, a Mac-specific section etc.)?

I welcome a productive, ongoing conversation from all of you to help us make the new community the best it can be. We'll do our best to make it a functional service, keeping in mind that there will be certain technical limitations.

Thank you!

I really do not understand those who made this decision.
This forum helped me in last 17 years in many cases more than MakeMusic Support.
I will not upgrade to any further version of Finale if this forum would be stopped, I am pretty sure.

These forums were originally created to provide a way for our passionate Finale users to share ideas, provide valuable input, and find answers from our community.


So why not just leave it as is?

To use a musical term, the tone deafness of this company never ceases to amaze me.

One would think that a new forum would at least be as good as this ancient one, but MakeMusic has managed to avoid that, it seems.

Judging from the lack of activity, my guess is that MM is hoping to move the entire user base from here to there. That doesn't seem very likely, however, and personally, I'm betting more on a user driven, unofficial forum as the only viable future option.
